send her back to South Africa. But the

provision for many sick and wounded of

wa* now greater kt the far Bast than In

A singular case Involving the rights of
a holder of a half-fare unlimited ticket
developed recently on the Santa Fe line.
It was on an casthound train from Ban
lectlng tickets, was given the return por
tion of a half-fare or child's excursion
ticket from Kansas City lo Son Francis
co. The holder of llw ticket was a young
man about S years of age. The conductor
looked at him. smiled and asked:
“You don’t expect to ride on thl* ticket,
“Why not? It I* on unlimited tick eg
and I bought It In Kansas City eleven
The conductor examined It more care
fury and found that Is bore the stamp
of the H ints Fe office at Kansas City and
was dated April If. !W. It was, more
over, as the youn man had said, an un
“I don't doubt what you say about buy
ing It." the conductor said, “but you
were a kid then ami now you're a man.
I can't let a man ride on a child’s ticket.
You must put up the other half In cash
or get off the train.”
“But let me explain My father put up
nearly 3109 for that ticker eleven year*
ago and your company baa hud the use
of Fo of It for all that time without
rendering any service lo him or me for
whom he bought It. If I have to pay th
extra half fare, am I entitled lo a credit
In the shape of Interest on that tan for
“I'm not cracking those kind of nuts,”
the conductor replied, smiling. "You're a
men and you have got to have a man's
ticket or pay full fare.”
"Well. I will pay Ihe extra half fare,
but I would like to have something to
show for It.”
"All right; I’ll give you a receipt.”
The numey was paid and the receipt
given, tile name of Ihe young man Ixdng
Charles A. De Courey. He said he would
rweeent a claim against the Bunts Fe on
hi# return from an eastern trip.
Ixrcal pa*etiger men to whom the css#
wit pre ...><ted any the conductor took the
proper #l*ll*l an*l that the young man
ha* no legal or cqupahle claim against
the company. A railroad ticket la a
contract and both portlr* to It must com
ply with the term* end the condition*
provided on It. A child's ticket calls for
a child passenger and the moment the
holder ceases to comply with this condi
tion Ihe ticket Is not good for passage
so far as he Is concerned. As railroad
companies do not agree to pay Interest
when redeeming unused tickets, the ab
surdity of a claim of this kind la readily
seen. The prospect# are fhat Mr De
Courey will keep hi# reeelpt as an odd
souvenir of an odd railroad Journey.
